At every trade show, Benchmark gives away one new DAC2 converter!
At our next trade show, drop your business card in this bowl for a chance to win!
The winner can keep the DAC2 or apply its full value toward another Benchmark product of higher value.
On January 28, 2016, at our offices in Syracuse, we drew the winner for the NAMM 2016 show.
And our NAMM 2016 winner is ...
Bennett Prescott, Director of Front End Operations for Sound Forums.
Bennett visited our booth and dropped his card in our fishbowl, never expecting to win. Yesterday was his lucky day!
Rory at our NAMM 2016 Booth:
"About as exciting as email ever gets."
Rory emailed Bennett to let him know that he had won. Here was his response:
"Hey Rory, I checked my email... holy ....! Well, that's about as exciting as email gets. I didn't forget I dropped my business card into the fish bowl, but I had no hope. Hope leads to the dark side, or something."
Do I detect a Star Wars theme in his response? It seems the force was active on the show floor as evidenced by this photo:
"These are the amplifiers that you are looking for."
Rory Rall shows a Storm Trooper the AHB2 power amplifier and explains the new THX AAA Technology. Rory was heard to say: "These are the amplifiers that you are looking for."

DAC2 DX - Silver
Bennett opted to apply the value of the DAC2 L toward a silver DAC2 DX. His upgrade to the DAC2 DX only cost him $200 - what a deal!
"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."- John 15:13
David Paul Siau - June 25, 1983 - July 17, 2022
McKenzie Joy Siau - December 30, 2020 - July 17, 2022
On the evening of July 17, 2022, my oldest son David Paul Siau gave the ultimate sacrifice of love when he knowingly gave his life to save those he loved. He took three shots from a 12 gauge shotgun so that his wife, children and sister could be spared.
David is survived by his wife Christy Siau and their two oldest children, ages 6 and 3. His 18-month old daughter McKenzie was killed within moments of David. I have no doubt that David and McKenzie entered into God’s glory hand in hand.
My daughter-in-law Christy Siau was shot and nearly killed in the incident. We are grateful that she is now out of the hospital making a full recovery.
In the end, my daughter Christina Siau fought the attacker with a knife and prevailed. She sustained many knife injuries and it is a miracle that she lived. She is now out of the hospital and making a full recovery.
We ask your prayers for the healing of physical and emotional scars. We have been overwhelmed by the love people have shown to our family during this difficult time.
